Yasmine Merveus is a licensed clinical social worker. She has a master's degree in social work and a master’s degree in human services counseling: marriage and family. She is also trained in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. Yasmine provides a warm and supportive environment free of judgment and a space where the stigma of mental health does not exist.
I offer a 15-minute, free consultation to give each prospective client a chance to determine if the way I work will suit them. If not, I can provide other information and referrals. Because of my own diverse cultural awareness, I understand that there is no such thing as one-size-fits-all in therapy. Therefore, I use an integrative approach to psychotherapy, focusing on your individual needs and goals. I aim to inspire hope in you and empower you to create change by adopting healthier responses and coping skills. I assign homework as needed and we discuss progress or regress together.
Working in community mental health for years has motivated me to help reduce the stigma around mental health in the Black community. Black women do not have to endure and accept everything just so that they can be called "strong"; I want to change the narrative of "strong Black women" as women who actually take care of their mental health, who create healthy boundaries, and who are allowed to be vulnerable.
